It was to be Canada’s first army offensive of the European campaign; but against a well-fortified enemy, Canada suffered its heaviest single-day losses of the Second World War. This fine silver coin honours the valorous spirit of the Canadians who fought at Dieppe, and their selfless acts of heroism against all odds.
